Is anyone else having trouble accessing Google Drive? Since yesterday (Friday, Feb 28th) I have been unable to access drive.google.com or open any of my Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc. I can't even open Docs that I have shared publicly. 

All I get are errors such as:

-----
Google Drive encountered an error. If reloading the page doesn't help, please report the error.
To learn more about Google Drive, please visit our help center.
We're sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your help!

or

-----
500. That’s an error. There was an error. Please try again later. That’s all we know.
-----

Can anyone else access my publicly shared Docs? Here are some sample links to some of my Docs from my website that I can't open:

The Paperless Classroom with Google Docs:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fzwQSQbMKtBYJawRzjs0NrLN0QQnTPV-rlzc5_N4lEU/edit?usp=sharing

Google Sites for Schools:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SrDYq7eua_bd4rTF6YRjg1mQTm3x8KYqVkzLPwsnxzI/edit?usp=sharing

Using Google Forms:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/15i1AamaA_47cI-9Wc9Rw_A-Tr7h6yM0lp-xofJImgzI/edit?usp=sharing

By the way, this is only happening for my personal Google account (ericcurts@gmail.com) and not any of my Apps for Education accounts.

Thanks for any feedback!

I have been getting that error since yesterday and so have my students. We have iPads at school, so at first I thought it was something that needed updated, but then the same thing happened at home on my desk top. It is frustrating because my students are working on a shared document for a science lab.

I am therefore I think.
Introduction
I am married to my wonderful wife, and have one daughter, three sons, a dog, and a cat.  I enjoy spending time with my family, writing (articles, essay, short stories, poetry, novels, and more) , seeing movies, listening to music (Switchfoot, House of Heroes, Brandon Heath, Lovedrug, mewithoutyou, Relient K, Skillet, tobyMac), most anything SciFi or Fantasy (Doctor Who, Firefly, Game of Thrones), biking, running, and surfing the net.

I am a Technology Integration Specialist for SPARCC (ITC in Northeast Ohio). Previously I served as the Technology Director for North Canton City Schools, in North Canton, Ohio (7 years as a middle school math teacher and 14 years in technology).

I am a Google Apps Certified Trainer as well as a Google Certified Teacher (GTANY12).

I have provided technology trainings and presentations at numerous schools and conferences around Ohio and across the country including the Ohio eTech State Tech Conference, eTech Ohio Summer Summit, 2006 NECC (San Diego), Authentic Education Assessment Conference (Princeton), Ohio Literacy Specialist Conference, Pinnacle National Users Conference (Colorado), Pinnacle Midwest Users Conference, Stark County Fall Technology Conference, NEOtech, and more.

I co-host a bi-weekly Ed-Tech Podcast called "The State of Tech" along with Sean Beavers and Eric Griffith. The show is in both video and audio formats, and covers educational technology in and around Ohio. You can access the episodes, show notes, and more at:

I also run some other Ed-Tech websites including:
